Re: A series completed: Analysis of all eight movies in one

The movies

Which movie out of all eight of them is your favourite? Why?
It was Chamber of Secrets but now...Its Deathly Hallows Part 2. Why? Hahaha..hahahah! DH2 was executed so perfectly, there are no words!

If you could name one moment which you consider your favourite for all movies which one is it?
The Prince's Tale! It was so good!!!

Directing

Which director did the best job of portraying the Wizarding World?
Yates. Bro knows whats up. Columbus was fine for the first two films but as the series progressed, we needed a more...artistic direction.

Would you have preferred one director for all eight movies?
Ultimately, yes but the way it works now is ok. Each film has its own feel to it.

Storytelling

Which story arc has been fleshed out the best during the movies? Examples: Coming of Age story of the Trio, Harry vs Voldemort, The Marauder vs Snape, Snape as Dumbledore's inside man etc.
The growth of the trio is huge. Its possibly the best thing about the films. Also Voldemort's own development.

Acting

Which character has had the best portrayal (script wise and acting wise)?
Alan Rickman no contest. He was the best. He could do things with Snape that no one could possibly do. Daniel Radcliffe also gets honorable mention. Hes come such a long way and its wonderful!

Which actor or actress in their role has been a revelation to you?
Dan Radcliffe and Emma Watson both. I see huge futures for them.

Music

How important has music been to you while watching the movies?
It is important. We need it to capture the mood.

Who is your favourite music composer?
John Williams.

Which soundtrack is your favourite?
Prisoner of Azkaban. I do like Sorcerer's Stone as well.

What is your favourite music track?
You know, i cant really answer that...

Cinematography, Set Design, Costume Design etc.

Which movie has the best cinematography?
Ohhhhhh thats a tough one! I really liked the cinematography of Half Blood Prince. Both DH movies as well.

Best set design (props etc)?
I loved the sets of the first two films a lot. But Prisoner Of Azkaban's change of Hogwarts worked really well. OoTP gets special mention for Grimmauld Place.

Best special effects?
Deathly Hallows Part 2. Easily.

Best costumes?
The last 4 films.

Overall verdict
Are you happy with the Harry Potter movies as a completed series?
I am actually. Sure, Goblet of Fire was the weakest of the lot but i think as a whole, the films are great on their own.
